Been hitting Escort Bases all day. I've had to have hit at least 20 maybe 25 of them today. I've only been able to get 1 "Dumb Fire" Tech for my Escorts and been getting the other prizes over and over and over again! Kixeye. Time to start evening out the Prize cash outs! I only need one more Dumb Fire and I haven't had any since 24 bases ago! This is ridiculous! ENOUGH with the dang Lottery program! It SUCKS!!!

    The Escort bases uses a RNG based payout system which means that unlucky incidents may occur. In order to determine luck, you can compare the payouts for Dumb Fire tech to the payouts for the other gold workshop component in order to get a better picture of the payouts.

    Exactly the same for me except I didn't even get a single dumb fire and attacked 20-25 bases after the two I attacked for the Escorts. I got half a dozen or more of the other gold tech but no dumb fire.

    Did another 10 today still no dumbfire. Have done at least 35 and got every other tech including the other gold countless times. Kixeye knows what we are after and turn down chances of getting it to a miniscule amount. It's their typical MO.

    For real. Did 45 bases finally got one Dumb Fire. Too much of a grind. tech should be in gear store.

    If the workshop component were available in the Gear Store would still not mean that it would be super easy to obtain as sometimes, the medal pricing may speak the otherwise.

    Not when I'm always sitting on 1 Million medals and am dumping them on stuff I don't really want each week before payout.

    I did 8 bases and got dumb fire in 5. It's just luck and the fact that only unlucky people come here to complain.

    No, I do mainly refer to that medal pricing for limited tech may not always be that generous and under many situations also relatively high which means that better options exists for spending the medals.

    That's like saying, with all respect **** off. It's an unneeded comment. And escort bases are super easy to do, you can do them with free repair just using envoys and manticores so...

    Why don't read the topic, the topic is about the broken payout. Nobody is talking about medals or if the base is hard to do.

    Why is there are lotto system at all. You made things better with what you did with the Gen I and Gen II bases, why can't we have the equivalent for Gen II bases. Not saying we should get guaranteed unit and tech payout, but maybe say every other base you are guaranteed a gold component and what you get will alternate. That way you know what you're going to get and no one feels like they're being screwed over.

    It's not broken it's just a few unlucky people complaining, and these bases are super easy to do, keep doing them and you'll get gold tech eventually
